      We are 4 way with BB, who raised limped POT.

      We have flushdraw and bottom pair, on turn improved to double gutshot and flushdraw with 1 pair. We have best relative and absolute possition.

      With this I have decided go for POT size raise on turn with intention calling shove.

      When I missed river, check fold was the line as vilians are not willing fold anything here for only less than 1/3rd of the POT.

      Would be passive line be better in this situation?

      We have all uknown plrs (3 hands) except the BB who is after 130 hands 18/15, AF 2.5, 3Bet 2

      I would raise preflop to 2.50.
      I would also bet on the flop.

      If you decide to play this hand passively you have to play it passively i.e call the turn (you have so much equity there).
      If you decide to play it aggressively you Bet pre and then CBet.

      But to me starting passively and then being aggresive on the turn doesnt make sense. It turns your hands into some kind of bluff where you have massive equity to just call and see the river.

      I also prefer just calling turn, since pot is getting that big, so likely they won´t fold if you shove 22$ into 70-80$ pot
